Previously, the only DVD release of Welcome Back, Kotter
was a 6-episode "Television Favorites" disc that was a Best Buy exclusive throughout most of 2006, and in early 2006 finally "went wide" and sold at other retailers
. Fans hoped that this would lead to a season set release at some point. Well, at long last, it has!
Warner Brothers is planning to announce the June 12th
ship date for Welcome Back, Kotter - The Complete 1st Season
. It will contain all 22 episodes starring Gabe Kaplan (who co-created the show) and John Travolta.
